Florida father will go to jail for daughter's unintentional shooting

A father in Jacksonville, Florida will go to jail for 90 days after pleading guilty to culpable negligence for his 6-year-old daughter's unintentional shooting two months ago. 32-year-old Donnell Burney was cleaning a .380-caliber handgun. He left the gun unattended when his daughter, Donesha, picked up the gun and shot herself in the chest. Donesha is expected to make a full recovery.
Burney is also sentenced to five years probation and is barred from owning firearms.
Ohh shoot.

Parental supervision should not be applied only to this matter. I mean, even the simplest of household items can lead to mishaps if they're left unattended. Let's just wish Donesha good health and hope that things will work out for Burney.
